[ applause ] >> thank you, ken. we are deeply honored and very much and this program will hold a very special place in our heart. thank you very much. it's my easure to introduce you to dan from the innovation hangar. he comes from a long and fascinating career even though he's so young and youthful and taken a very deep and
11:32 am
meaningful path to his career in which he combines an incredible creative spirit, deep knowledge of tech, an incredible entrepreneurial sense and very deep guiding sense of sustainability on philanthropic side and he will bring his great spirit to all he does here and it's my pleasure to ask had i am to come up. thank you. [ applause ] >> welcome. it's very exciting to see everybody here and for you to begin to feel the excitement and atmosphere that comes with a sense of
11:33 am
place. place is very important and it's actually the driving force that let us to do the things that hopefully you will get a chance to enjoy over the next year. it comes with the idea if you bring a lot of people together from different backgrounds with different skill sets and different needs and motivations together they can create something better than apart. moreover, this place has an important message through the notion of world's fairs. world's fairs are the greatest example of power and place whether it's 1939. these are moments in our history and innovation loves a deadline. i will tell you. when these world fairs were coming together there were very
11:34 am
intense moments when dreams came to reality to be able to show case to the world. don't get me wrong. there is a very important part of the virtual world and i have been part of it for a long time with the dubious contention with the very first cellular data to be able to send a text message from a moving vehicle. i'm not sure if that's entirely positive, but, at the time it seemed like it was pretty cool and we thought we can do great things. and spent some time working with the federal government and at the time i saw so many of my colleagues and friends involved with text and to come up way to change the world to find funding and there wasn't a good path and there wasn't a way to find help to
11:35 am
link them through the federal government and the private sector. the impetus was if we brought entrepreneurs as investors and the general public come and demystify the general process to make it happen. that's why we are here and working to bring it together. that's why we have the tenure in this space and creative to come altogether and the energy is palpable. the partners that you are beginning to move in to occupy the space are the essence of innovation in its best form and people that are here to promote social impact in so many ways. i think very importantly and then i will get off your stage is we have partners like maker and maker media that have a very different view
11:36 am
of who will innovate for the future. many of the world's fairs by necessity hat had a top down view by large organizations of what this would look like. by celebrating the centennial, by celebrating what this has become is a place where many people are going to be able to come up with the future and many different versus of the future and many different paths to innovation and that's what we are here to do and excited to do and lastly, it's an incredible responsibility that i'm incredibly grateful for to be the curator of this space. audrey
11:37 am
talks to me, she's the angel when i'm here very late at night. the gravitate of this space is something i have never seen. people just knock on the door and want to come in. i'm excited that for many years, the general public will have access to this place, the different languages of innovation and hopefully take that with them, take it back to where they can be inspired themselves. thank you very much and glad to be here. [ applause ] >> thank you so much, dan, for helping us dream about what is within these beautiful walls and right in this space leading over to the fireplace will be about a 10,000 square
